Throughout the year, Vlasic Early Childhood Center students participate in a number of special events that emphasize community, participation, imagination, and, of course, fun. During the annual Halloween Parade, imaginations blossom as Vlasic students are transformed into ghosts and goblins, or princesses and clowns.
Special programs are one more way that students are given the opportunity to expand the boundaries of the classroom and learn about themselves and their community through experience.
Brookside takes great pride in continuing to develop and introduce new ideas and programs outside of the classroom. Our Brookside students never search too far to find special opportunities for individual growth and exploration. Our young poets and storytellers are celebrated at Brookside's Young Authors' Tea.
The importance of community service is instilled through hands-on experiences such as donating food to local food banks, supporting our sister school in Namtenga, Burkina Faso, Africa, and bringing in candy to send to our soldiers overseas. Grandparent Day invites our students' older family members to experience their grandchild's daily life while meeting their teachers and friends. These programs work to unite our community and widen each student's perspective and experience.
